Dylan Lenox took to social media to share an inspiring story of how a stepdad and biological father can work together to give a child the best.
More often than not, divorces end badly and kids are trapped in the middle of it- add a stepparent to the mix and it could prove be a catastrophe.
However, Briefly.co.za gathered two dads showed it is possible not only to get along, but to be the best dads any child can ask for.
Dylan Lenox took to Facebook to share photos of himself with his stepdaughter and her biological dad.
In the inspiring post, Lenox described how he and his fiancee's ex-husband, David, not only act as co-dads for their daughter, Willow, but how they managed to build a beautiful friendship with each other in a world filled with hatred.
Here is Lenox post:
"Our daughter Willow. You may never know how your love has changed us all. The guy to the left is myself (Daddy, Daddy Dylan or Bonus Dad), in the middle is of course our Princess Willow and the guy to the right is David (Daddy, Daddy David or biological Dad). No we are not a same [gender] couple, but we do share a daughter. David is Sarah’s ex husband and I am the Fiancé. We have molded ourselves into one unique family, of only for the sake of our children to know the power of love. Not only did I gain a daughter, I gained a brother and a best friend. Thank you Sarah for letting this all happen!
When we care more about our children (on both sides of the party) than the way society has taught us to be towards (ex's/baby mommas/daddy's) then walls will fall, life will be free of hatred and remorse, and our children will conquer the foolish "norms" that media has shoved in our faces. He stays at our home when he visits, because family is always welcome. He is not an outsider, he is and will always be apart of my life for the simple fact that we share the same daughter! Of course not a single moment would be like this without Sarah (mommy) and her kind and generous heart! Willow Grace you are loved by so many people in this world and your Daddies love you!
